Ellen says: “This recipe is a quick and easy dish using ingredients you’ll probably already have in your cupboard including canned chickpeas, tinned coconut milk and canned tomatoes. You could also use canned spinach and potatoes if you have them handy. It’s tasty, warming, and great as a one-bowl meal or served up with rice or naan if you’d prefer.”
